    I always build at ride height with the size of tires and wheels the car will have on it when finished, that's how important stance is.

    It is good to see that we mostly agree on the importance of wheels and stance. It is clear that we do not agree on what that is exactly, but that is OK. But posting pictures of the same car over and over serves no purpose, especially if it is your car. :rolleyes:

    IMG_4496.JPG Here is my cabriolet's updated stance since I replaced the stock 4 banger with a 1965 Buick Gran Sport 425 cubic inch engine. Note that the wishbone is NOT split.;)
    To say the car is responsive is a tremendous understatement.;):D

    For my money, no body nails stance better than Ryan does.

    The top photo is my '40 when I bought it and the bottom photo is what it looks like now. Put front bumper on car 20160302_143905.jpg 20190913_105120-1.jpg along with all the stainless trim, had Nostalgia Sid drop front axle 2", changed wheels and tires.

    In your case, wheels and stance is all you need! That Poncho looks great just like that!

    Thanks for the kind words! It's a fun ride! First time at the strip the car went 10.74 @ 124 mph through the exhaust.
